    Crosstrain, XTrain, XT: Call it what you want. Just do it.

    A throwback to Train Like a Mother--or actually, what was left on the cutting-room floor of Train Like a Mother. A space thing--not a content thing. (Good stuff, that crosstraining: we promise!)

This pic doesn't do these shades justice: They are the sassiest shade of pink.

Hump Day Giveaway: Oakley Sunglasses

I am rarely without my sunglasses here in Colorado, where a gloomy day is as rare as China missing a gold medal in diving. (Guess what I’m watching right now?) If my glasses are not over my eyeballs, they’re perched on my head or on the brim of my hat. The sun shines crazy here, which I–and my mood–just love, while my eyeballs love my Oakley shades, which protect them so well and give them more style than they’ve seen in years. (Trust me: yaaaeeeaarrrs.)

I don’t just wear Oakleys in Denver though. I’ve been spotted wearing them:

Following in my wake (ha!) are other jetsetters like

One of you lucky ladies gets to follow in the wake of Laura, Kerri, Kristin, and Julie; today we’ve got a pair of OAKLEY Commit SQ up for grabs…

Tell Me Tuesday: Getting Over Bad Body Days

Tell Me Tuesday: Getting Over Bad Body Days

Lately, my calves have felt as thick as anacondas. And my stomach is showing signs of too many drumsticks–not the chicken kind, but the chocolate-covered kind. And then yesterday, during my longest bike ride in years (65 miles!), I spent way too much time fixating on the fact that my upper arms just jiggled and jiggled. And…and…and…

Even though I’ve got a tall frame and a healthy BMI, my body image is, more often than not, far from healthy. I hate that. I hate that after a great triathlon a couple weeks ago, I can still fixate on the fact that I can feel my stomach double over on itself…

Two goofy moms with 12 cents

Finding Change–and Laughs–on a Run

Let me share a theory I have: While on a run, if you don’t stop to pick up the first change you see on the road–be it a penny, nickel, dime, or quarter–you won’t find anymore money on that run. But if you bend down to pick the coin up, you’ll find more moola on that outing. Several months ago, I shared my hypothesis with my good pal Molly, as she’s as thrifty as I am. Since then, Molly stops every time she spies change glinting on the pavement.

With this mindset in place, Molly and I set out to run nine miles together last Thursday. Conversation flowed as freely as sweat, with me talking about the nifty art camp my kids were attending that week and her telling recent work tales (she’s a vet)…

Listen to find out how this little fella popped up in Sarah’s life this week.

Answers to More of Your Questions

Dimity and Sarah serve up answers to several questions related to long runs, including training v. racing pace; how much you can slack off during marathon training; alternative fuel sources; and how to talk back to that evil voice in your head that tells you to walk at the end of races. Dimity also recounts her recent return to the wonderful world of triathlon.

How I get high: the Portland Bridge Pedal.

Giveaway Winner: Bontrager Cycling Outfit

I love the freedom and sense of adventure of being on a bike. When I was a single-again gal living in San Francisco, I often took part in Critical Mass. For this non-thrillseeker, the “thrill” of riding en masse down city streets was just rush enough.

Here in Portland, I can’t wait to take part in my favorite mass ride in town: the Bridge Pedal on August 12. This year, riders can opt to do the 10-Bridge route that crosses all, you guessed it, 10 bridges here in aptly nicknamed Bridgetown. Unless you count biking to boot camp or the post office, I haven’t really trained for the 36-mile ride, but I figure my marathon-training legs can handle the cruising pace…
